Marigold

Petite Mix

Tagetes patula

$4.00

A French Marigold that’s ideal for sowing in amongst vegetables and fruit plants. These dwarf flowers have double blooms in yellow, orange and red – all prime targets for beneficial insects like pollinating bees, as well as ladybugs, lacewings and hoverflies whose larvae feed on aphids. Keep pinching of the dead flower heads to encourage plants to produce fresh blooms. Plants should keep going up until the first heavy frosts hit cooler areas. Germination guaranteed.
